Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Olhao region - Casa Formosa

Apartment with 2-3 bedrooms, private garden, roof terrace with panoramic view

Casa Formosa is located less than 10 minutes drive from the vivid fishermen town of Olhão, on a contemplative hillside, in a calm valley. We designated it so, because from the major spots of our landed property, you got an amazing view to the Ria Formosa, particularly from the huge sun roof terrace. Evergreen hills are flanking the dale, here it is perfect to keep an eye on the turning of the tide. Ferries oscillates between mainland and up streamed Isles of Armona and Culatra. Countless sailing boats anchors during summertime, by day they twinkle snow-white and by night they glitter as stars, which felt into the ocean… Casa Formosa is right in the middle of the 7000 square meter plot and its old tree population. Out of 3 cardinal points the land declines to the valley, that is why the apartment has its own private garden of 1500 square meters dimension. In the old residential area of the elongate estate there are the very busy owners living. They help with words and deeds, will be a good neighbour to you, and at the same time they will absolutely respect your privacy. They realized plenty of their ideas at Casa Formosa and took their fist-hand professional experience in mediating holiday accommodations since years, in advantage for this project. Since age of times the conception was been planned and in 2013 finalized. The result became a very comfortable holiday house with very well considered details and snugly atmosphere…

Entering through the big glass door, the cosy materials of tiles, doors and furniture offer a nice and warm welcome. Passing the round arch you come to the spacious living room, which is divided into kitchen and sitting room. In between there is a bar, where you can have a relaxed chat. All three windows from the lounge are going to South-west and offer you a beautifully view into the garden to the ocean. Folding shutters and an excellent isolation, will spend lovely coolness during summertime, and during the rest of the year, the room can be flooded with sun and bright light, similarly. Fly screens keep away undesirable visitors. Wood burner in cast iron, is the heart of the living room, it is fixed on a semi-circle brick layer platform. A dining area with dining table, sofa suite and little corner with TV, music, internet access, completes the sitting room. The “blue kitchen” is adjoining, best equipped, nothing to miss, while a look out of the window over the Ria Formosa will sweeten your holiday. 2 bedrooms going towards North, according to requirements, you can put the beds as a double or single one . Each bedroom has a wardrobe and a ceiling fan. In between the bedrooms is the bathroom located, very tastefully with Portuguese tiles and a bath tub. In case you are more than 4 people, the studio next to, can also be rented in addition. The studio is through 2 doors cutting acoustic, it has a beautifully bathroom with shower, a double bed with cosy seats and well equipped kitchenette. The studio has its main, private entrance in the North, also an exclusive terrace to the South, that is why also the studio can be booked separately, without the big apartment. Open access to the guest garden is exclusive for apartment visitors, but the spacious, furnished sun roof terrace (120m²) with panoramic sea view and over the valley, stays open all house guests. Common use is the utility room with washing machine. Worth mentioning, that both units are also wonderful during cooler season, because all rooms got their very economically wall heating (buried wiring under nice tiles) working with infra-red, which is very healthy and spends cushy warmness. The apartment got in addition to them also a wonderful wood burner.

Casa Formosa´s surrounding is quite nice to stroll up and discover the nature, there is a plenty to observe. Up from the hill on the back side of the casa, you got a fantastic view over the Ria Formosa, the Atlantic and the fishermen town of Olhão. Especially by night it is amazing, when the city lights, the illumination of the island villages, the lighthouse and the stars are shining. Crossing narrow sandy path along very ancient stonewalls, almond trees, figs and carobs you should continue your walk. With a little knowledge of a place you can reach the tiny lagoon beach of 'Cavacos', not longer than half hour by feet. We do recommend a car, going to the beach, shopping or sightseeing. Holiday guests who like to spend a more active leisure time, could do all this also by bicycle.

Lovely stay in early spring

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to Casa Formosa on Feb 3 2015 and stayed for five lovely weeks. The house was very fine situated on top of a hill with a marvelous view over the sea. In the great garden we could always find a place in the sun away from the wind. The apartment was fully equipped and the open fire gave us cosy warmth in the evenings. The owners were very friendly and helped us in every way we needed.

Traumhaus in ruhiger, wunderschöner Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten zwei wunderbare Wochen im Studio des Hauses Casa Formosa.

Die Vermieter Heidi und Jens sind herzlich, immer hilfsbereit und sehr entspannt.

Alles ist liebe- und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Ein Ort zum Wohlfühlen. Das Studio ist sehr sauber, gepflegt außergewöhnlich gut ausgestattet und. Über Toaster bis Mixstab, sehr gutem Kochgeschirr, neuwertige Pfannen und Töpfe, super Herd und Ofen und auch noch einem Grill auf der Terrasse! Es fehlt an nichts.

Alles ist bezaubernd, die Landschaft, die Ruhe, der Blick und auch die naheliegende Stadt Olhão .

Viele wertvolle Informationen lagen im Haus bereit für uns (Wanderrouten/ Radtouren, Fahrplan der Fähren, Kulturveranstaltungen, Ateliers, Bioladen usw.)

Mit den gemieteten Fahrrädern, die uns vor die Haustür geliefert wurden, konnten wir alles wichtige erreichen und schöne Ausflüge machen:

Nach Olhão zum Schlendern, Essen und Einkaufen. Nach Fuseta auf den tollen Flohmarkt und einem kleinen Bad im Meer. Zur Fähre die uns zu Traumstränden auf den Inseln Armona und Culatra gebracht hat. Zum Zug, der uns in die schönen Städte Faro und Tavira gebracht hat. Zur Info für zukünftige Gäste: der Zug ist echt günstig und er fährt die schöne Küste entlang.

Empfehlenswert ist auch ein Blick auf die sehr informative Website http://www.casaformosa.de/

Wir empfehlen Casa Formosa zu 100% weiter und werden es wieder buchen.

Traumhaftes Ferienhaus

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben die ersten beiden Maiwochen mit unseren beiden knapp 2- und 4-jährigen Söhnen im Casa Formosa verbracht und konnten die Zeit dort uneingeschränkt genießen.

Zuerst einmal sind Heidi und Jens zwei wirklich entspannte und herzliche Gastgeber... Wir haben uns sofort willkommen gefühlt und waren jederzeit von ihnen gut beraten.

Ihr Ferienhaus haben Sie mit sehr viel Mühe und liebevollen Details gestaltet. Es hat uns wirklich an Nichts dort gefehlt. Ein Ort zum Wohlfühlen und abschalten. Alles war picobello sauber und der mit viel Herz und Arbeit gestaltete Außenbereich war traumhaft.

Fazit: Mehr als nur empfehlenswert. Wir kommen sicher gerne wieder!!!

Tolles Zuhause für einen entspannten Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Das Casa Formosa liegt am Berghang mit einem unverbauten Blick auf das Meer. Der weitläufige Garten lädt mit Terrasse, Ruheinsel zum entspannen ein. Unsere Kinder konnten ungestört Fußball spielen, Beachball, fangen, verstecken und co. Die Wohnung ist im Top-Zustand.

Erholsamer Urlaub in schöner Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Wir fanden alles so vor, wie auf den Fotos zu erkennen ist. Die Beschreibung der besonders netten Vermieter stimmt 100%! Der Zustand des Appartements war sehr gepflegt und neuwertig. Es fehlte an nichts. Ebenso das liebevoll angelegte Grundstück. Die Vermieter standen bei Bedarf immer zur Verfügung, drängten sich aber niemals auf. Ihre Tipps für Ausflüge und Restaurants in der Umgebung waren unentbehrlich. Wir haben uns drei Wochen dort sehr wohlgefühlt und uns bestens erholt.

Hier ist wohl jeder Aufenthalt zu kurz

  • 5 of 5

Wer Ruhe sucht, sich gleichermaßen wohl auf einem großzügig angelegten und sehr gepflegtem Außenterrain wie in einer gemütlich eingerichteten und komfortabel ausgestatteten Wohnung fühlt, der ist hier absolut richtig aufgehoben. Umgeben von Granatapfel- und Mandelbäumen und mit Blick auf die Ria Formosa mag es schwer fallen, unter den Terrassen und Sitzgelegenheiten im Außenbereich jeweils die richtige auszuwählen, bereuen wird man die getroffene Auswahl auf jeden Fall nicht.

Neben der überzeugenden "Hardware" sorgen die Vermieter durch eine unkomplizierte Betreuung sowie vielfältiges Informationsmaterial für einen auch sonst gelungenen Aufenthalt.

Und wer genug von Sandstränden, Märkten, Bootsfahrten usw. hat, kann gut auch mal "zu Hause" bleiben, denn eigentlich sind Haus und Garten fast zu schön, um sie für Ausflüge zu verlassen ...

Just a few kilometres north-east of the bustling harbour town of Olhão is located on the slopes of a peaceful, tranquil valley, Casa Formosa. The name for the estate stems from the magnificent views that you can enjoy from large parts of the property and in particular from the large roof terrace overlooking the Ria Formosa lagoon. Flanked by the evergreen hills here can be of the constant ebb and flow easily observed. Ferries travel between the mainland and the island of Armona and in the neighbouring island of Culatra countless sail boats moored in the summer, the days when white sparkle in the sun and sparkle in the night like stars fallen into the water ...

Around the Casa Formosa can take leisurely walks where there is much to see.

Right behind the house you can continue to climb up the hill and after just a few meters with a fantastic view of the Ria Formasa, rewarded the Atlantic and the port town of Olhão. At night, when the lights of the city and next to the island villages still lighthouse and stars make their contribution, this view is no less spectacular.

On narrow trails and dirt roads, past ancient surrounding walls, almond, fig and carob trees, the journey of discovery continues. With some local knowledge so you can run within half an hour even to the small lagoon beach 'Cavacos'.

However, a car is recommended for shopping, beach and city visits. Sporty guests can also cope with a bicycle but the manageable distances.
